Car Performance 03


New 2010 Wiesmann Roadster MF5 sport car with the great speed for race. Wiesmann Roadster MF5 use the V10 engine so, the Wiesmann Roadster MF5 just need 3.9 seconds fromg 0-100 km/h. Moreover, Wiesmann Roadster MF5 sport carenthusiasts into a brand new dimension of driving enjoyment and 2010 Wiesmann Roadster MF5 also support the open-air experience that available to select of power package.

Delivering a top speed of 310 km/h, an exceptionally low power-to-weight ratio of only 2.7 kg/hp and completing the sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, the Wiesmann Roadster MF5 takes even experienced sports car enthusiasts into a brand new dimension of driving enjoyment. This exclusive open-air experience will only be available to a select few because the spirited power package is only being produced in a limited edition of 55. Equipped with a V10 engine, 507 HP and 520 Nm torque, it’s a car that appeals to all the senses. The extendable rear wing of the roadster version plus perfectly balanced suspension set-up guarantees the necessary stability, even at top speeds.


Who says you can’t be green…and mean? Not Porsche, which is debuting an assortment of high-performance hybrids at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. That includes the new 918 Spyder concept, which combines race car-like acceleration, a top-speed of 198 mph, and the fuel efficiency of a micro-car.

Taking its bows alongside the GT3 R Hybrid race car and the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid, the Porsche 918 Spyder concept is a mid-engine sports car using plug-in hybrid technology. The high-revving V8 side of the package develops a full 500 horsepower at 9,200 RPM. But that’s paired with a pair of electric motors on the front and rear axle that can themselves turn out another 218 hp.

The gasoline engine and rear motor drive the back axle through Porsche’s 7-speed PDK, an electrically-shifted manual gearbox. The front motor drives the forward axle through a single-speed transmission.

The 918 Spyder Concept features a large lithium-ion battery pack that can be recharged, overnight, on the electric grid.

A tap of a button on the steering wheel allows the driver to choose from any of four driving modes, including E-Drive, where the Porsche 918 Spyder concept can run for up to 16 miles on battery power alone. Sport Hybrid mode uses both gas and electric power, but emphasizes performance. Race Hybrid is a track-oriented mode that pushes the gas-electric drivetrain to its limits.

In track mode, the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept will launch from 0-100 kmh (0 – 62.5 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. The maker claims the car can turn a 7:30 minute lap of the Nodschleife of the Nurburgring, faster than the Porsche Carrera GT. Yet, the plug-in hybrid supercar is rated at about 78 mpg, and puts out well under 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer, well under most minicars. Top speed is rated at 198 mph.

To further improve performance – and fuel economy, Porsche adopts a lightweight carbon-fiber-reinforced bodyshell for the 918 Spyder concept, along with magnesium and aluminum components, bringing total weight to just 3,285 pounds.


If you ever wanted a flaming love child for a car, you will find it in the Hennessey Performance Engineering’s HPE700. The car is a cross between the standard 2010 Camaro SS and the Corvette ZR1. The car looks sleek and beautiful and even comes with awesome features, which will wow you to hell.

The car comes with 15″ ceramic brakes, faux hideaway headlights and much more, and is designed to suit the tastes and needs of the rich and the famous. The HPE700 will cost $109,50 and is definitely an expensive car to buy and certainly hip looking.

So go ahead, and get this car before that annoying rival of yours at the club gets it! The car looks amazingly expensive and in fact, I would say the quoted price is too less for an elegant machine like this. Don’t fret and don’t think twice, but just go purchase when the beauty arrives in the showrooms.

Volkswagen R GTI Concept

Think the GTI and R32 are the hottest Golf's on the market? Well, think again.

Making its debut at the 2006 SEMA Show in Las Vegas is the R GTI, a look forward into the future of compact car performance and boy oh boy does it deliver the goodies.

With its striking carbon-fibre body panels, four-passenger sports car interior, powerful turbocharged engine and competition-bred suspension, the R GTI is a stimulating fusion of style and dynamic excellence, fully modern in content and achievement yet staying true to such longstanding Volkswagen values as drivability, durability and utility.

Volkswagen Chief Designer Derek Jenkins and his talented crew at the Volkswagen Design Center California collaborated with the firm OSIR Design to revamp the exterior components of the standard GTI's front fenders, hood, side rockers, and hatch door with carbon-fibre panels developed by both OSIR and Jenkins’ in-house team.

Spicing things up even further are specially constructed 19x9-inch aluminum alloy wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup ultra-high-performance radials in size 265/30 R19.


The standard 2.0-litre FSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine is extensively tweaked with a larger Garrett ball-bearing unit with twice the flow capacity and boost to 21 pounds per square inch. All of the pressure-side plumbing was strengthened with silicon hose. A large-diametre cast-aluminum, black powder-coated intake pipe feeds the big turbo the cool air it needs from the larger, front-mounted intercooler, delivering twice the stock air flow. An Inconel exhaust manifold and an APR stainless steel exhaust system ensure efficient flow-through.

The clutch was upgraded to handle the increased torque, and a Quaife limited slip differential (LSD) was installed to make the engine’s power flow more efficiently through the tyres. For the suspension Jenkins called on longtime experts H&R Tuning to supply a system that would be reasonably comfortable when the R GTI was used as daily transportation but would also deliver crisp, precise handling when the road gets twisty or for weekend track days. Replacing the stock suspension is H&R’s RSS Club Sport system of coil-over shocks and springs, augmented by a pair of adjustable sway bars. Ride height is reduced from 1.5 to 2.5 inches, but despite the ground-hugging stance and the Club Sport’s stiffer-than-stock settings, the suspension is compliant enough to comfortably dampen the rough spots in the road.

To make the R GTI stop as well as it goes, Brembo’s four-piston aluminum alloy calipers, which squeeze Brembo two-piece floating cross-drilled discs with billet aluminum hats are fitted.

It’s a tidy, factory-like transformation, and the result is a whopping 375 horsepower, on 93 octane fuel. If 100 octane fuel is used, output rises to a staggering 400 horsepower and a stonking 0-96 km/h time of 4.8 seconds!

As this is a concept car, there are currently no plans to introduce this model into production.
